Immediate future of Everton star hangs on next managerial appointment

The Liverpool Echo has revealed that the Everton career of out-of-favour forward Kevin Mirallas depends on the choice of their next manager.

The Belgian winger has fallen way down the pecking order at Goodison Park in recent times, and is said to be considering a January exit having seen his plans to leave during the summer transfer window fall through.

Mirallas, alongside Morgan Schneiderlin walked out of a training session last week, leading to their being dropped from the squad that faced Watford on Sunday.

The former Olympiakos man was linked with a return to the Greek side and an interest from West Ham, but both clubs were only keen on a loan deal – an offer Everton knocked back.

Interim manager David Unsworth handed Mirallas his first and only Premier League start this term, and will likely hand him more playing opportunities if appointed on a permanent basis.

Given his age and dip in form, though, the 30-year-old is no doubt nearing the end of his Everton career, regardless of who ends up in the dugout.
